1

Bring the kettle to the boil. In a medium bowl, combine the couscous, currants and salt. Add the boiling water and stir to combine. Immediately cover with a plate and leave for 5 minutes. Fluff up with a fork and set aside.

2

Meanwhile, heat a large frying pan over a medium-high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. Add the chicken tenderloins, chermoula spice blend and season with salt and pepper. Cook, tossing occasionally, until browned and cooked through, 3-4 minutes.

3

While the chicken is cooking, roughly chop the cucumber and tomato.

4

When you're ready to pack your lunch, roughly chop the mint. Stir the cucumber, tomato and mint through the couscous. Season with salt and pepper. Divide the couscous and tahini between two microwavable containers and top with the chermoula chicken. At lunch time, remove the chicken from the couscous and heat in the microwave until piping hot, 1-2 minutes. Top the couscous with the hot chicken.
